I didn't even know about the Canadian dairy industry trade protection until my first trip to Europe. Like any other d-bag, cheese platter and wine for lunch with friends on my first trip, and was blown away. Not even a fancy place, just whatever random place that had a table out, and the cheese was out of this world. I never ate much cheese before (aside from Cheese Whiz or Kraft singles lol) but every time I travel to Europe I make an effort to eat as much cheese as possible and it's a fraction of prices we pay here. Come back to Canada, tried to get imported cheese, barely exists. Only some imports, and it's jacked up to shit in price. That's my first time learning about the cartel.
Second time, the CEO of Hublot has his own ranch and makes his own cheese, and for repeat customers is happy to send a wheel of his cheese. You can't buy this shit anywhere, the yearly supply just goes to customers. For me, he couldn't send it to here because he would have to register to be a Canadian cheese importer to ship cheese to Canada. They only dish out something like 4 licenses a year and of course a million % tariffs.
Good to see Trump bash our stupid Dairy cartel.
